Good product, great price, Killer Picture


Bought the 65" Sony 4K almost as an impulse but am OH so happy, Picture quality on HD broadcasts outshines both my sharp Aquos and my 60" Samsung plasma by a wide margin. Liked the curved screens but they look really funky mounted on the walls so went...

picture quality is fabulous

3D-- I do not like 3 D

The best picture I have seen


This tv has the best picture and everything you could ever want except the only thing it is missing is Netflix 4k.

Beautiful TV with a ton of potential....


To be honest, I don't fully understand the capabilities of this TV yet. As an owner of a Pioneer Elite plasma, I'm comparing this TV to "the best". Blu Ray through my PS4 looks stunning! PS4 just updated to 3d playback, and it looks awesome on this TV....

Price was fair, 4k and 3d help to future proof

Still looking for optimal settings,,,,sports and scrolling text just doesn't look perfect

Excellent TV


I kept waiting for the price to come down on this unit, and when it finally got down in the $3k range, I bit. I've ready plenty about how 4K TVs aren't yet worth it at 55 or even 65 inches, and due to lack of content... but the reason this TV gets so...

Great TV


I have always been a Samsung fanatic and I finally decided to pull the trigger on the 65" Sony X850B after reading and watching numerous reviews and seeing it in store. I don't think that you could ask for a better TV and it looks like Sony is finally...

Sony does it again!


First off, there was nothing wrong with our Samsung HD TV after owning it for 4 yrs, but when THIS tv first came out I knew at some point we would own one. After waiting months on end, I took the plunge and purchased it, along with a new media stand...

Great quality! Amazing viewing experience


This tv is beyond worth the price! Watching sports is especially phenomenal- it feels like you are there. If you go 4K you can never go back to basic 1080p viewing. I would definitely recommend buying a sony-they are the best

Great looking picture!


Excellent picture! You can really tell which stations have good HD feeds (Fox) vs excellent (ESPN, CBS). The up scaling of blu rays are awesome as well. Sound is subpar due to the nature of speakers on a LCD.

Best 4k TV currently for the price


Typically I buy Samsung I like their picture quality very much however when I compared the two I felt that the color on the Sony was more realistic and natural. What drove me to buy the Sony versus the Samsung was the noticeable motion blur in very...

Color Saturation is great and natural liked it better than the Samsung

Needs to have the picture adjusted to get a better white point
